Fox News contributor and civil rights attorney Leo Terrell blasted Black Lives Matter activist Hawk Newsome for his “very insulting” threat on government and law enforcement on “Fox & Friends Weekend” Sunday, after Newsome refused to condemn violent riots in an interview with Dan Bongino Saturday.
LEO TERRELL: Black Lives Matter in New York doesn’t represent Black people. It certainly doesn’t represent me. And for this guy to go on a national TV program and refuse to condemn violence? He’s a shakedown artist…
These people live on chaos and fear. If he’s so powerful, run for office. I’m begging Eric Adams right now, implement this anti-gang unit because Newsome has no power, no clout. And I find it insulting for an organized group… to threaten the government, that if you don’t do what we want, we’re going to burn you down.
This is a person who supports riot. It’s offensive. He does not represent Black people.
